Cabrillo is the defending Coast Conference champions and has many components of that team back for the 2007-08 season.

“I do feel good about this team,” said Cabrillo coach Tony Marcopulos. “They have worked extremely hard this summer. I believe that work will pay off for them in more ways than one.”
